Sephora doesn't carry the Giorgio Armani cosmetic line... only the fragrances so the color iq wouldn't help. see post

Quick Makeup Routine??
I need help! I love makeup so much, but I've started only wearing it to parties and on the weekend because I don't have a fast makeup routine for when I roll out of beds on the week days and have to make it to work in 20 minutes. I want to look made up, but in the morning I just don't have time for my gel pot eyeliner, foundation, eyeshadow, etc. routine! I need something that will make me look non-zombie (which is what I look like totally without makeup) that I can do in 5 minutes. Does anybody have any good suggestions for products? I think I need a BB cream or tinted moisterizer, quick lip balm/stain that I can swipe on and has pretty color, and eyeliner that doesn't need to be applied with a brush, but will stay all day. I'm from the Indain subcontinent, so my complexion is olive, black hair, brown eyes. Thanks so much!!!

Makeup Brush Travel Bag
Hello fellow beauty lovers!   I am looking for a makeup brush travel bag that I can use for when I travel that also won't damage my brushes... I have only been able to find the bags that come with brushes (which I don't need) and would just like the bag. And I don't have THAT many brushes (I have about 10-ish), so I would need something that holds a majority of that and possibly one that hold a little more just in case.   I also don't want to spend too much for it, but I want something of really good quality that's not going to start breaking after a few uses. It's gotta be able to lee up with me   Thanks!

Having lots of trouble with my skin/makeup
I posted a question about this problem before. My makeup hasn't been setting on my skin lately. At first it was only a problem on my nose, and it would look dry and blotchy. Since then, I have noticed under my eye/cheek region has been very blotchy looking as well. I moisturize my skin every morning and night with a Cetaphil moisturizer. I've tried using Urban Decay's Complexion Primer Potion and I've used many different brand foundations to try to find the problem. Nothing has really changed. I went to a local Sephora and talked to a skin expert about the problem. She gave me a sample of Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate & Perricone's Blue Plasma. Neither of those seemed to work. My makeup just looks patchy and splotchy on my face. Since getting older, I have found myself to have drier skin. I have never had this problem before and have been able to use any foundations or primers without any problem. Has anyone had this problem or have a suggestion to the next step I should take in treating this problem?

Cleansing oils?
I am 49 years old with combo/sensitive skin- more on the dry side. I have been using purity made simple, both original and gel formulation, but i find it doesn't remove makeup really well.

What is your favorite eye makeup remover?
I have used Lancome's Bi Facial with reasonably good results, but I was hoping I could find something that removed the mascara with fewer swipes (hoping to minimize damage to the eye area).  I tried MUFE Sens Eyes and it really burned the skin around my eyes, which was a disappointment, since the cream seemed to be more effective than the liquid formulas I've been using.  I want something without mineral oil as I have had problems with that before.  Any suggestions?

I'm not sure what colour to get!
Hey guys! I've gone in to Sephora multiple times to get colour matched, but every time I go, they match me with a colour that makes me look orange. I'm not sure if it's the lighting in the stores, or if my skin is a stranger colour(?). I have yellow undertones (I believe), and I am Korean. I'm not sure what colour to use in any brand because they never match. I'm a lot tanner than Koreans usually are, but since it's nearing winter, I'm getting paler again and I don't know what colour to get in foundation and concealer. Help?

Bronzer/Contour for yellow-toned skin
Hey!   I was just wondering if anyone had recommendations for a bronzer that could be used also as a contour for yellow-toned skin? I have light skin, and in summer, light-medium skin.    I have tried the NARS Laguna Bronzer, however, I can't really see much difference with it, because it's rather light. I've also tried The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 2, but that is waaay too pink, and looks dirty and orange.   Thanks everyone! I appreciate it!

Difference between Cameo and Medium Beige in Dior foundation?
Hello! I have Dior Forever Compact Powder foundation, which I love, in Cameo but it's a tad too light. Is Medium Beige a lot darker? My undertone is cool/neutral. When I tried Rosy Beige in the store it was too dark and reddish, and Light Beige was way too light. Not sure what peachy undertones are, but I'm guessing the Peach shade would be too orange on me.
